About Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 is a co-operative online multiplayer survival horror and first person shooter game with opposing teams of four players each. One team takes on the role of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse while the other team assumes the role of powerful zombies. The teams then work against each other trying to achieve their objectives. For the Survivors, the goal is to fight back the zombie onslaught and have at least one survivor make it to the safe room. The primary goal of the zombie team is to prevent the survivors from making it to the safe room by killing all four. The zombie players have a number of special abilities and powers along with hordes of "normal" zombies that assist in trying to take down the survivors. The survivor team will have a number of different weapons at their disposal as well as health recharges that can be found en route to the safe room or extraction point.

Once a team has achieved victory, the will switch sides with the former survivors becoming zombies and vice versa. The game continues through a set of best of five matches. Left 4 Dead 2 also includes some variant game modes as well as multiple maps and environments which feature close quarter buildings as well as more open outdoor environments.

The overall premise of the game closely follows that of the original Left 4 Dead game. Left 4 Dead 2 does feature a new set of survivors, different special zombies and a wide array of firearms and melee weapons.
